Over the River ...

And through the woods ... traveling to the Thanksgiving feast has never been easy. But here in the megalopolis it's taken on a new degree of craziness.

A nor'easter is expected to dump anywhere from two to four inches of rain in the next 24 hours. Snow and ice have not been ruled out. Flooding is a possibility. Traffic jams are guaranteed.

To gather at grandma's all you needed was a sleigh and a team of willing horses. To reach family and friends at the modern table requires strategic thinking (should I leave at 2 or 1:30?), nerves of steel (which route through the mountains promises the least chance of snow accumulation?) and a go-for-it attitude.

But go-for-it we will. People are important. Whether they're over the river and through the woods — or up I-95.
